we are currently looking to add a coprocessor to offload an EtherCAT Master to separate chip in one of our systems and the AM437x processors might be a possible solution.The Sitara AM4379 and AM4377 have "EtherCAT" listed in their "Industrial Protocols" section on the product overview, while the other models have not.
However, i cannot see any relevant differences between these two models and the other AM437x Models (the datasheet for all of them lists EtherCAT and and the necessary Real time units (PRU-ICSS).
Which models support EtherCAT?
thanks and regards,Lars

alright thank you very much. What is the difference between those models and the rest of the Sitaras?
